3 Reasons To Start A Blog

Have you been thinking about starting your own blog? Why not go for it? There is nothing to lose!

Check out these reasons why you should definitely create your own blog.

1. A creative outlet

Do you enjoy writing? Are you a creative person? Me too! I remember taking my first creative writing class in high school and I fell in love with it. If you are in a job where you can’t use those creative juices, blogging is an excellent outlet for you. One thing that I strongly believe in with blogging is to NOT WORRY about what people think. That was probably the main thing that held me back for so long with starting a blog. Remember, you are writing this blog and you are in control of what content that you put out there. Some people just aren’t going to understand it or like it, but others with similar interests (like you) are going to love your blog! Trust me, you won’t think that anyone is reading it at first, but you’d be surprised. Someone always is. Stick to what you love writing about and what you’d like to read.

2. Gain Income

That’s right, if you really enjoy your blog and put in the effort to create consistent content, then you have the chance of making some extra money. You can make a little money on advertisements, collaborations with other bloggers, and freelance writing or guest blogging on others posts. Don’t quit your day job though right away, because this will take some time/effort.

3. Networking and connections

There are so many groups on Facebook that you can find to network with other bloggers. Just do a search for “bloggers” and you will find a ton. These groups will help you establish relationships and you can learn so much from other bloggers (new or experienced). I try to network and meet as many other bloggers as I can. It is such a positive community and everyone has to start somewhere, so others understand that and are willing to help you. Trust me, I knew nothing about “SEO” when I first started and I’m still learning!

So don’t be afraid to get started! You never know where your blog will take you.
